Mrs. Lindsay Leonard

Hello Students and Parents of CASHS CLass of 2024!

My name is Lindsay Leonard, and I am so excited to work with the CASHS Class of 2024.  This is my 17th year working as a school counselor, with this being my 9th year at CASHS. My first 7 years as a school counselor were spent at Scotland School for Veteran's Children. I then had a long-term elementary substitute position at Fayetteville and Guilford Hills Elementary. My passion as a school counselor is to partner with students to find academic, personal/social, and career success. Over the years in the profession, students have inspired me through their strength, tenacity in overcoming difficult life circumstances, desire to succeed, and willingness to share their personal stories. Each group of students hold a special place in my heart and I look forward to seeing our CASHS Class of 2024 grow during their high school experience.

The 9th grade year is an exciting, but overwhelming, time for students to adjust to becoming a high school student and prepare for their future.  Students will begin to explore pathways to their future dreams by participating in career exploration activities, learning about job shadowing, participation in exploring college and technical schools, and learning more about career options in the military. Throughout the year, the 9th grade counseling team will work with students, parents, and teachers on providing information on career interest inventories, transition activities to successfully adjust to becoming a high school student, and positive social and emotional health activities.  While the COVID-19 pandemic has caused the delivery of counseling services to look different this year, it is my personal goal to ensure all of my "freshies" feel connected and valued as a student in the CASHS Class of 2024. 

While I am not originally from Chambersburg, my family and I have lived in the area for 17 years. My husband I  both grew up in Bedford County, PA and have known each other since kindergarten. We were high school sweethearts and have been married for 19 years. I attended Waynesburg University and earned my BA in Psychology. After working for 2 years in the mental health field, we moved to Chambersburg and I earned my MEd in School Counseling, K-12 from Shippensburg University. We have two joyful and active children who attend school within CASD, so we are very active in our local community. As a family, we enjoy spending time together camping, hiking, kayaking, and playing softball/baseball. In my free time, I love to garden, take care of myself by working out, riding my four-wheeler, and spending time with my girlfriends laughing and enjoying live music. Please make sure to say hello and introduce yourself if you see me around Chambersburg. I love being a school counselor and getting to know both my students and parents. As we all work together for success, do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. Students can stop in my office before or after school and during the school day (when we return to school).  Parents are encouraged to reach out via email or phone, along with request a meeting to discuss concerns or have questions answered. As a school counselor, I am here to help, so please reach out in order to partner together. 

We are going to make it a great year for our Freshman Class! Go Trojans!
